Isn’t it cool to stumble upon something that you had almost forgotten?!
I just discovered recently that the very first TV interview I did about entrepreneurs is now online, having been posted just a few days before Christmas. I was in Perth, following the Western Australia book launch of Lifting The Lid On Quiet Achievers in Port Hedland, and Borders bookstore was the venue for my very first Conversations With Entrepreneurs. City of Perth TV was invited to the event, and this was the recording as they asked me about my thinking and experiences that led me to start my own business, to coach regional entrepreneurs and leaders, and why I chose to interview and write about them.
You’ll get that I’m a bit passionate about the “untapped possibilities in regional Australia”. So if you’ve got a dream buried beneath your busy-ness, get it out and go for it! If you’re just a little discouraged – focus on what’s possible and – Go For It!!
I was reminded this week of the difference between successful businesses and struggling businesses. It’s actually not much at all. I’ve seen some business owners struggling with a lack of customers, family/time pressures, a sense of overwhelm and high stress levels, but all that’s needed is a fresh perspective, a clear plan (usually only small tweaks and consistent action needed) and a positive attitude. This is challenging however, to create on your own – and as I have worked with a coach every year I’ve been in business, I can recommend coaching in all honesty and integrity. I don’t even mind if you don’t choose me as your coach, as I only work with a small group of highly motivated leaders, but get an excellent coach (and I have a few I refer to) or contact me and see the difference a coaching relationship can make to your life and business.
Cheering you on,
PS. You may not currently see yourself as highly motivated, but if you know it’s in you, just buried under busyness and other ‘stuff’ (thinking) get on the journey of accountability and encouragement, and your motivation will return.
